Situated in the Snowy Mountains, make sure you check out the beautiful panoramic views from the Rotary Lookout. Work wise it’s all about Apple picking and the Stone fruit harvest ( plums, cherries, peaches, apricots) From October – May there will be work on offer.
Fruit Picking Work in Tumut
The closest major city is Canberra, a 2 hour drive away along the Barton and Hume Highway. From Sydney the drive is about 4.5 hours south west, also along the Hume Highway.
On site camping is always a cheap alternative otherwise caravan parks are an affordable option.
Not Fruit Picking – What to do?
Check out the Tumut musuem, walk the heritage trail or marvel at the african violet farm. The Falling leaf festival is also a great event to attend in April.
Many harvest jobs will meet the Second Australian Working Holiday Visa eligibility and count towards the 88 days of specified work. Some regional locations and jobs are ineligible which could lead to the Department of Immigration rejecting your application. So remember to confirm whether or not your fruit picking or harvest job will count towards the Second Australian WHV.
